Cliffs wins victory in Ring of Fire court case
Northern Life
It'll be up to Natural Resources Minister Bill Mauro to decide if Cliffs Natural Resources gets permission for an overland transportation route into the Ring of Fire. An Ontario Divisional Court recently set aside a decision reached by the Ontario Mining and Lands Commissioner last September that denied Cliffs an easement for a road to reach its Black Thor chromite deposit atop the mining claims of a rival company, KWG Resources.

Waking the giant
Canadian Mining Journal
"Two hands wide and it goes on forever!" is what prospector C.J. Johnny Baker is rumoured to have bragged of the gold-riddled quartz vein he and Herb Dixon found on the rocky north arm of Great Slave Lake in 1935. Twelve years later their find became the Giant Yellowknife gold mine, the largest of a string of historic producers that fostered a 60-year, 14 million-ounce legacy. Then, with Giant's closing in 1998 and the neighbouring Con Mine's in 2004, the prolific Yellowknife gold camp went into hibernation. Today, after a decade-long snooze, it may be waking up again.
